EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Sept. 28 — Sore ankle and Ray Lewis Purple Black White Jersey nike Ravens elite limited game Jerseys 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 60 all, Broadway Brett joined Broadway Joe in the Jets’ record book.Brett Favre set a career high and tied Joe Namath’s Jets mark with six touchdown passes, including three to Laveranues Coles, and New York took advantage of a series of mistakes by Arizona in a big second quarter before holding on to beat the Cardinals, 56-35, on Sunday.”Throwing six touchdown passes was awesome,” Favre said. “That had nothing to do with how I felt I played. It was one of those games. More importantly, I felt the overall game itself, I managed it well.”Favre, showing no signs of a left ankle injury that hobbled him during the week, finished 24 for 34 for 289 yards and an interception for the Jets (2-2)."I asked him if he had tied a career high and he said, ‘I’ve never thrown six,’" said Jerricho Cotchery, who had two touchdown catches. "That was like the end of the conversation because I’m scratching my head, like, ‘Really? He’s never thrown six touchdown passes before?’ He played great today.”He was just dialing it up and telling everybody, ‘Hey, get ready. The ball is coming.’ “Arizona wide receiver Anquan Boldin was carted off the field after a scary helmet-to-helmet collision with New York safety Eric Smith in the end zone with 27 seconds remaining. Boldin was moving all his extremities on the field and was talking to his teammates, but was immobilized and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York for precautionary reasons.New York’s defense rattled Kurt Warner and forced three fumbles and two interceptions in the first half, and the Jets set a franchise record by scoring 34 points in the second quarter."That’s more like it," safety Kerry Rhodes said. "We came after them with some looks and wrinkles they hadn’t seen."Coles had eight catches for 105 yards after campaigning to the coaches for more plays earlier in the week.”I think it was a little bit of me being a brat,” he said. “Sometimes you want to be involved Ravens elite limited game Jerseys 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 60 a little bit more, not in a selfish way. I feel if given an opportunity, I can help the team win some ballgames. I went and voiced that to the coaches and they heard me.”Warner tried to bring the Cardinals (2-2) back in the second half as Arizona scored 35 points. Warner, 40 of 57 for 472 yards, threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Jerheme Urban with 4:49 left, but lost the ball again on a fumble with less than three minutes left.”I didn’t play well,” Warner said. “I’ll bounce back and play better next week.”Favre hit Dustin Keller for a 24-yard touchdown and a two-point conversion with 1:54 remaining to seal it for the Jets, wearing their navy and gold New York Titans throwback uniforms.”It’s just one game,” Favre said. “Don’t expect six touchdowns every week, but we, as an offensive unit, should see and expect a lot of ourselves.”After a scoreless first quarter, the Jets got on the scoreboard early in the second when Favre found Coles streaking across the back of the end zone for a 7-0 lead. Darrelle Revis gave the Jets a 14-0 lead just over a minute later on a 32-yard interception return.Coles caught his second touchdown pass of the game with 7:17 left in the half as he went uncovered down the left sideline as defensive back Eric Green crumpled to the turf near the line of scrimmage with a sprained right knee.Favre and Coles Ray Lewis Purple Black White Jersey nike connected for the third time on a two-yard score with 10 seconds left in the half to make it 31-0.The Cardinals chose to run a play instead of taking a knee — and paid for it. Warner was sacked by David Bowens, who knocked the ball out of the quarterback’s hands and recovered it. Jay Feely kicked a 30-yard field goal as time expired.Edgerrin James had touchdown runs on consecutive possessions in the second half, cutting the deficit to 34-15, and Tim Hightower added a one-yard touchdown run to make it 34-21.Favre came back and connected with Cotchery on a 17-yard touchdown, but Boldin had an eight-yard touchdown catch, cutting the deficit to 41-28.Again, Favre led the Jets down the field and hit Cotchery for a 40-yard touchdown.”As long as I play up to par and allow these guys to make plays,” Favre said, “we can be pretty good.”/* BEGIN TOP STRIP STYLES */#customTS-SingleThumbBlog width:454px;margin-bottom:6px;padding-bottom:6px;font:11px Arial;border-bottom:solid 1px #CCC;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog p margin:0;padding:0;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog a:link, #customTS-SingleThumbBlog a:visited text-decoration:none;font-weight:bold;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog a:hover text-decoration:underline;color:#C00;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog .redkicker font-weight:bold;color:#C00;margin-bottom: 4px;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog .thumbSlot float:left;width:80px;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog .textSlot float:right;width:368px;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog ul padding:0;list-style-type:none;font-weight:bold;margin:0;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog li background-image:url(http://media.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/images/bullet_3x3_999999.gif);background-repeat:no-repeat;background-position:0px .4em;padding-left:6px;padding-bottom:2px; Latest Posts From NFL News Feed More Posts | Sports Blog Directory #botPromoStrip background: #fff url(‘http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/sports/longterm/2007/photo/gray624.jpg’) no-repeat; padding: 7px 10px; margin: 5px 0 10px 0;More in the NFL SectionThe LeagueA conversation about what’s happening today in the NFL.NFL News FeedMark Maske keeps you up-to-date with all of the latest news in the NFL.Redskins InsiderJason Reid provides exlusive analysis of the Redskins.

The Jets came into yesterday’s game with a new starting quarterback in second-year player Kellen Clemens. It seemed inevitable he would become the starter this season after the Jets struggled to a 1-7 record behind incumbent Chad Pennington. New York gave Clemens a boost when it started the game with Leon Washington returning the opening kickoff 86 yards for a touchdown. Washington caught the ball on the right side of the field, waited for his blocking to develop and darted to the left side before beating the coverage to the end zone. The Redskins responded with a Gary Barnidge Brown Orange White Jersey nike 46-yard field goal from Shaun Suisham, and the Jets added a 29-yard field goal from Mike Nugent.#botPromoStrip background: #fff url(‘http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/sports/longterm/2007/photo/gray624.jpg’) no-repeat; padding: 7px 10px; margin: 5px 0 10px 0;More in the Redskins SectionRedskins InsiderNews updates, poll questions and exlusive analysis of the Redskins.Tailgate ZoneA discussion Browns elite limited game Jerseys 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 60 group that invites fans to debate all matters burgundy Gary Barnidge Brown Orange White Jersey nike Browns elite limited game Jerseys 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 60 and gold.Insider PodcastPost reporters and editors discuss and dissect the team’s ups and downs.

With microphones and tape recorders pointed toward him again, Greg Blache, the Washington Redskins’ defensive coordinator, spoke with reporters in one of his longest interviews in years at the start of minicamp. And at times, Blache, who had declined comment to reporters Chargers elite limited game Jerseys 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 60 on all matters the last two seasons, citing his desire to retain a low profile, appeared to enjoy the interaction. Or maybe not.This StoryNew Leader of the Defense Opens UpHealthy Linemen Provide Redskins With a Solid StartRedskins Notebook: Coach Hopes Competition at Punter Nets ImprovementAt His First Practice, Zorn Already Has ‘Good Feel’ for the RedskinsView All Items in This StoryView Only Top Items in This Story”Going to get my prostate checked or doing this? I think I’d [take] two prostate exams to one press conference,” Blache said, only somewhat jokingly. “Trust me, this is like a dental appointment.”Blache, who served as Washington’s defensive line coach the last four seasons, now has league-mandated media duties as a coordinator. The Redskins promoted Blache in January when former assistant head coach-defense Gregg Williams, who now runs Jacksonville’s defense, left the team when it became clear he would not replace former head coach Joe Gibbs.Under Williams, Blache, 59, had significant input in devising and implementing game plans each week, many players and team officials said. And Blache was a successful defensive coordinator for five seasons with the Chicago Bears before joining the Redskins. Blache plans to retain most of the defensive scheme that helped the Redskins produce three top 10 finishes the last four seasons, and veteran defensive players are pleased that owner Daniel Snyder and Vinny Cerrato, executive vice president of football operations, retained Williams’s top lieutenant, who said he will keep things simple with reporters.”I try to be honest with you; get in and get out,” Blache said. “I will send Christmas cards, but there won’t be any invitations to the house.”Reporters who cover the Redskins daily interviewed Blache Ryan Mathews Navy Blue White Jersey nike regularly in the 2004 and 2005 seasons. Blache, in his 21st season in the NFL, was considered to be among most insightful assistants about defense and he often provided colorful quotes. While struggling to explain the defensive line’s poor performance during a 36-0 loss to the New York Giants in the 2005 season, Blache said: "I don’t know. I haven’t talked to Miss Cleo today," referring to the self-proclaimed psychic in television ads earlier this decade. For the last two seasons, Blache declined every interview request. "It was just a choice I made," Blache said.As is often Ryan Mathews Navy Blue White Jersey nike Chargers elite limited game Jerseys 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 60 the case, however, there is more to the story. Blache, who sparred with reporters while directing the Bears’ defense, was upset that reporters sometimes used comments out of context, a team official said, and with no interest in pursuing other jobs, Blache decided he did not need the hassle of dealing with reporters.In fact, Blache last season repeatedly told colleagues he had no interest in another promotion and that he did not plan to coach much longer. Blache acknowledged as much in his first extended interviews after breaking his silence, which occurred in the complex’s auditorium after new coach Jim Zorn’s introductory news conference in February. But Snyder and Cerrato persuaded Blache to replace Williams."Coach Blache was with Coach Williams for four years, but he has been a coordinator in the league and he’s just good at what he does," cornerback Shawn Springs said. "He’s definitely not a man of many words, but he expects a lot. Guys love him because he’s honest with you, he’s straightforward, and you want to play hard for him."Blache has helped the new members of the coaching staff make a smooth transition, Zorn said. “He is a man that’s not going to sit back and wait for you to get to know him,” Zorn said. “He’s been very active within our staff of having functions at his home. He really brings people together.”Although Blache also previously had the title of defensive coordinator, working with the defensive line was his primary responsibility under Williams. Defensive lineman Phillip Daniels was with Blache for four seasons in Chicago and joined the Redskins in free agency before the 2004 season, which was Blache’s first in Washington. Daniels anticipates that the transition from Williams’s defense to Blache’s defense will be smooth because "it’s going to be the same defense," Daniels said. "We’re going to run the same stuff, pretty much, he’s just going to tweak it."Williams made an effort to simplify things last season after the defense struggled in 2006. The unit rebounded in 2007, finishing eighth in the league, and the defensive scheme will be streamlined even more.”We will have fewer packages,” Blache said. “This is not about building the perfect castle. It’s about giving the players something they can execute in the heat of battle and under stressful situations. The biggest thing is being able to execute, get to the football and knock it out.”We are trying to be a hard, physical defense that’s intimidating with our speed and hitting ability. You can’t do that when you’re thinking about 20,000 different things. You can do that when you’re comfortable knowing what you have to do. And that’s what we are going to focus on.”Despite their success last season, the Redskins face questions on defense. The group could be without weak-side linebacker Rocky McIntosh and cornerback Carlos Rogers early in the season as they continue to recover from reconstructive knee surgeries. And Washington did not draft an interior lineman or defensive end with superior pass-rushing skills.”You don’t worry about what you want, you make do with what you have,” Blache said. “You can try and establish that you’d like to have something and if it comes, fine. But if you don’t [get it], you can’t sit around crying and worrying about what you don’t have.”We have some very talented people regardless of their age. They compete at a high level. They are capable of winning in this league. They proved it last season. Yeah, we’d like to get some younger players and we do have some younger players that we are going to try to infuse into the program. But you can find football players other than in the first round. A lot of guys on our football team that were fifth-, sixth-, seventh-round players, or some guys that were undrafted free agents, can contribute. It’s just a matter of finding guys with the talent, the desire, and putting in the time coaching them. That’s why they call us coaches. They don’t call us interior decorators.”» This Story:Read | Comments#botPromoStrip background: #fff url(‘http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/sports/longterm/2007/photo/gray624.jpg’) no-repeat; padding: 7px 10px; margin: 5px 0 10px 0;More in the Redskins SectionRedskins InsiderNews updates, poll questions and exlusive analysis of the Redskins.Tailgate ZoneA discussion group that invites fans to debate all matters burgundy and gold.Insider PodcastPost reporters and editors discuss and dissect the team’s ups and downs.

The NFL will begin airing anti-steroid television spots this weekend, part of an attempt by the league to make good on Commissioner Paul Tagliabue’s pledge to Congress to do more to help raise national awareness of the nation’s steroid problem among young people.During questioning by members of the House Government Reform Committee in April, Tagliabue outlined some of the league’s previous public-education measures on the steroid issue and said the NFL would increase its efforts to dissuade teenagers with dreams of playing in the league from using steroids.The new TV spots were taped by NFL Films in August with students at Cinnaminson (N.J.) High School and are scheduled to air during games Charles Mann Red White Gold Jersey nike throwback Redskins elite limited game Jerseys 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 60 and other programming on Fox, CBS, ABC, ESPN and the NFL Network. The spots were scheduled to begin airing last weekend but were postponed a week because of fundraising for relief efforts for victims of Hurricane Katrina. The league produced the spots in collaboration with the NFL Players Association and the National Institute on Drug Abuse.The spots will be the first ever aired by the NFL about steroids. The league’s previous attempts at steroid education for the public involved the distribution of literature and videotapes to high Redskins elite limited game Jerseys 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 60 schools nationwide.When Tagliabue and Gene Upshaw, the executive director of the Players Association, appeared on Capitol Hill in April, lawmakers praised the NFL’s steroid policy as being the toughest in professional sports but said the league still could do more. The April hearing came in the aftermath of reports that Carolina Panthers players had steroid prescriptions filled by a South Carolina physician within weeks of playing in the Super Bowl in February 2004. The league and the union have taken steps since then to toughen the NFL’s steroid-testing program.Tagliabue and Upshaw are scheduled to appear, along with the leaders of other sports, before the Senate Commerce Committee next week as it considers proposed legislation that would establish federal steroid-testing standards for pro sports.Exploring AlternativesThe Houston Texans are making contingency plans, with Hurricane Rita closing in on the Texas coastline.The team has a bye this weekend and doesn’t play again until Oct. 2 at Cincinnati. Club officials are studying the possibility of having the team practice in the Cincinnati area next week, if necessary, to prepare for the Bengals game.The Texans next play at home on Oct. 9 against the Tennessee Titans. That game could be moved to Nashville, if necessary, in which case a Dec. 11 game between the two teams scheduled to be played at Tennessee would be shifted to Houston. If the Oct. 9 game is moved, the Texans would not be scheduled to play at home again until Oct. 23.For now, the club’s players are scheduled to report back to Houston for a morning team meeting Monday. The Texans told their players to leave town for the weekend after canceling their practice scheduled for Thursday . . . .The NFL set kickoff times for the New Orleans Saints’ remaining seven home games this season. They’ll play all three of their games scheduled to be played in San Antonio (Oct. 2 against Buffalo, Oct. 16 against Atlanta and Dec. 24 against Detroit) at 1 p.m. Eastern time. They’ll play two of their four games scheduled to be played in Baton Rouge, La., (Oct. 30 against Miami and Nov. 6 against Chicago) at 4:05, and the other two (Dec. 4 against Tampa Bay and Dec. 18 against Carolina) at 1./* BEGIN TOP STRIP STYLES */#customTS-SingleThumbBlog width:454px;margin-bottom:6px;padding-bottom:6px;font:11px Arial;border-bottom:solid 1px #CCC;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog p margin:0;padding:0;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog a:link, #customTS-SingleThumbBlog a:visited text-decoration:none;font-weight:bold;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog a:hover text-decoration:underline;color:#C00;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog .redkicker font-weight:bold;color:#C00;margin-bottom: 4px;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog .thumbSlot float:left;width:80px;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog .textSlot float:right;width:368px;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog ul padding:0;list-style-type:none;font-weight:bold;margin:0;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog li background-image:url(http://media.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/images/bullet_3x3_999999.gif);background-repeat:no-repeat;background-position:0px .4em;padding-left:6px;padding-bottom:2px; Latest Posts From NFL News Feed More Posts | Sports Blog Directory #botPromoStrip background: #fff url(‘http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/sports/longterm/2007/photo/gray624.jpg’) no-repeat; padding: 7px Charles Mann Red White Gold Jersey nike throwback 10px; margin: 5px 0 10px 0;More in the NFL SectionThe LeagueA conversation about what’s happening today in the NFL.NFL News FeedMark Maske keeps you up-to-date with all of the latest news in the NFL.Redskins InsiderJason Reid provides exlusive analysis of the Redskins.

Baltimore Ravens running back Willis McGahee is currently limited to running in a swimming pool as he recuperates from arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, but he expects to be running with the football when the season starts.Although he’s off crutches, McGahee isn’t able to jog yet. He’s targeting the Ravens’ season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 7 for his return.”I will be ready, but I don’t know about playing in the preseason,” McGahee said. “We will have to wait and see.

Ahtyba Rubin Brown Orange White Jersey nike | Browns elite limited game Jerseys – 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 60

Earlier this week, when Washington Redskins Coach Joe Gibbs was asked to describe the strength of his offense after eight games and a bye week, the coach was vague."That’s kind of hard to say," Gibbs said, sprinkling in compliments to his quarterback Mark Brunell, before adding: "I think that’s where we’re at. I think it’s kind of hard for me to answer that."Two days later, Brunell mused Ahtyba Rubin Brown Orange White Jersey nike Browns elite limited game Jerseys 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 60 on the identity of his football team, and while his answer was longer than that of Gibbs, it was no clearer."I know what I would like it to be. I would like it to be a tough football team, physical particularly at the line of scrimmage running the ball and be efficient with the pass. It is no secret that we want to run the football," he said. "It has not been the case as much as we would like up to this point. We are only halfway through and we have a lot of football left. Hopefully, we will get on a roll here, get some yards on the ground, get some more points, but then when we do throw we need to be efficient, get some completions, spread the ball around and get some big plays as well."If the identity of the Redskins is at best amorphous, more of a wish list than fact based on statistics and tendencies, they begin the second half of the season in Philadelphia searching for pillars that will Browns elite limited game Jerseys 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 60 support a stretch run.Offensively, the statistics reveal a middling affair. The Redskins are in the middle of the league, 15th in total offense, 17th in points scored, but they are 21st in passing. They are eighth in rushing yards per game, but their star running back, Clinton Portis, says he has not yet found his place in the running game.Defensively, the numbers are worse. The Redskins are 30th in total defense, last against the pass, last in sacks, last in interceptions, 15th against the run, 26th on third down defense, and 24th in points allowed."I never look at the numbers," Redskins assistant head coach-defense Gregg Williams said. "I look at the best options that we have on getting ready for that week, the best available guys, and the best available packages. I’ve looked at it that way my whole coaching career."Unable to stop teams enough to count on their defense or score enough points to consistently create offensive mismatches — the Redskins have scored 30 points twice this season, under 23 points five times — that could spur a playoff run, the key, many players say, is winning what might be termed the "big-play index," the game-changing plays that conceal — and sometimes overcome — a team’s deficiencies.Just as offenses and defenses count on skill players to make a difference, so, too, do the Redskins look to their players to create enough big plays that could tilt the balance. In beating Dallas last Sunday, the Redskins were outgained, gave up 10 first downs on 16 third-down opportunities while converting only 5 of 13, and over the past four games have been outscored 43-0 in the third quarter.But on the big-play meter, they beat the Cowboys when it counted, not only blocking a field goal attempt but advancing it to get in position for a game-winning score. They netted a 48-yard pass interference call that led to Chris Ahtyba Rubin Brown Orange White Jersey nike Cooley’s game-tying touchdown.The Redskins won the big-play battle in other ways. Terrell Owens dropped what would have been a 74-yard touchdown, and in the final seconds tight end Anthony Fasano could have run virtually the length of the field on a blown coverage, but slipped and fell at midfield after an 11-yard gain."Big plays are a big part of it. That’s from a contact standpoint, and also from a field position standpoint and those are the things that we’re lacking in. Those are the things there has been a focus on here since I’ve been here, and really every day this year," Williams said. "We break most of our huddles on an inspirational thing. Today we had an unbelievable day in practice taking the ball away, but you need to transport that to the ballgame. That starts your team. It shortens the field for your offense and its something that good defenses are known for."Troy Vincent was the big player Sunday, but Sean Taylor has been the Redskins player who has continually been a key playmaker."I wish I could say we could coach that, but usually you’re born with those types of things, those instincts of being around where the opposition wants the play to be and Sean has very good instincts about that," Williams said. "He’s very active in the run front, and even when he is on those run fronts, he’s working very hard to create a takeaway and we talk about that all the time. You have to be good around the ball. Blocks don’t score. The ball is what scores."Winning a game on special teams is something of a reversal for the Redskins. On two occasions this season, they have netted big plays and lost. In Week 2, Rock Cartwright ran back a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown in a 27-10 loss to Dallas.

In the radio industry, Sirius Satellite Radio chief executive Mel Karmazin is like Bono or Prince or Charo: One name is sufficient. Say "Mel," and everyone knows who you’re talking about.The same cannot be said of XM Satellite Radio Holdings Chairman Gary M. Parsons. That’s why some say, if the proposed merger between the two satellite companies is approved by regulators, the two executives may work well together.Under the proposed merger, Karmazin would be the chief executive of the combined company, with Parsons chairing the board. There is no role in the new company for current XM chief executive Hugh Panero, whose duties have diminished since the XM board appointed director Nate Davis as president and chief operating officer in July.Karmazin and Parsons are opposite in temperament and style, said Tom Taylor, editor of Inside Radio, an industry trade paper. Karmazin Eagles elite limited game Jerseys 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 60 can be electric; Parsons is more laid-back.Case in point: The rambunctious Karmazin has been tossing merger speculation to the New Kenny Phillips Green Black White Jersey nike Eagles elite limited game Jerseys 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 60 York media and Wall Street analysts for the past several months. The more reserved Parsons has been just as interested in a merger, he said yesterday, but kept it to himself."He was looking at it," Parsons said of a merger, "and we were looking at it — just less publicly."Complementary traits between the pair could be key because the last time Karmazin was part of a power duo, things didn’t go so well. He left his job as chief operating officer of Viacom for Sirius in 2004 after clashing with Sumner Redstone, the equally strong-willed leader of Viacom.Before coming to Sirius, Karmazin spent more than three decades in the terrestrial radio business, most of it running Infinity Broadcasting’s radio stations and then CBS Radio, when Kenny Phillips Green Black White Jersey nike it bought Infinity and eventually became Viacom.Mel stories are plentiful, and they consistently paint Karmazin as a sleeves-up radio man devoted to making money for shareholders.Taylor recalls a story of Karmazin helping set up chairs in a meeting room before the start of an investors’ conference. Karmazin has near-total recall, Taylor said, which has come back to haunt station managers who worked under Karmazin and failed to produce a promised ratings number.If there’s one thing to know about Karmazin, it’s that he’s always about the sale. There’s a reason "Mel" rhymes with "sell.""He’s one of radio’s best-ever sales guys," Taylor said. "He knows how to sell radio advertising."CONTINUED    1  2   Next >
